low levels of air pollution effects can increase risk of cardiac arrest/air pollution effects and causes
According to a study published on Monday, short-term exposure of air pollution effects is related to a better risk of sudden heart problems, especially among older people.
Studies published in the journal The Lancet indicate that low levels of air pollution may also increase the likelihood of cardiac arrest. Study researchers at the University of Sydney say there is an “urgent need” for international guidelines on air quality.
According to the study’s authors, the research is considered to be the largest of its kind ever. He noted data on emergency medical responses in Japan over a two-year period, as well as the country’s record on air pollution that included Particulate Matter.
According to the Environmental Protection Agency, solids and particulate pollution is a mixture of particulate and liquid airborne droplets. Particles made of dust, dirt, soot or smoke, are generated from construction sites, unpaved roads, fields, smokestacks or fires and may contain various chemicals. But most particles are a mixture of pollutants from power plants, industrial and vehicle emissions.
